St. Paul Could Settle Police Brutality Case

ST. PAUL (AP) – The St. Paul City Council could settle allegations of police brutality for $400,000.

Forty-eight-year-old Daniela Hobbs and her 28-year-old son, Larelle Steward, sued in federal court over an incident at their apartment in October 2010. Their lawsuit says Hobbs suffered burns from a flash grenade police deployed while searching for drugs. It was Steward suffered cuts to his face and a broken nose in the search. No drugs were found.

The brutality settlement would be tied with the largest ever paid by the city. A similar settlement was made in 2001.
